GIS and Gaming Research Questions

The intersection between GIS and gaming raises many questions, such as:

  • How can games expand awareness about spatial thinking and geospatial technology?
  • Can game mechanics and incentives play an integral part in increasing public engagement with geodesign?
  • How can games be leveraged to promote data sharing and online GIS?
  • How can the geospatial community leverage the resources and talent of the gaming community?
  • How can simulations in gaming environments be used to improve conditions in the real world?
  • How can gaming/game mechanics help students to learn GIS concepts for real world problem solving?
  • How can games improve overall geographic/world knowledge?
  • What are the frontiers of mobile geogames and of Massively Multiplayer (MMP) geogames?
  • What can be learned from gaming that contributes to improved GIS workflows?
  • What can be learned from game programming that would improve GIS performance?
  • How can the gaming community leverage the resources and talent of the geospatial community?
  • What can be learned from GIS that contributes to improved game creation workflow?
  • How can GIS technology be used to create, visualize, and manage the vast worlds (worlds, terrains, features, characters, statistics) created in gaming?
